What Do You Need For The French Toast Sticks Recipe
- Eggs: always use good quality eggs. If you want to know if your eggs are rotten!, fill a bowl with water. If they sink to the bottom or lie flat on their sides, they are fresh. If they stay floating in the middle, they are not so fresh but still good. If they float, discard them.
- Powdered sugar: I use it because it dissolves faster than granulated sugar
- White granulated sugar: mix it with powdered cinnamon, and you have yourself the best coating for French toast sticks.
- Maple Syrup: It serves a dual purpose. For dipping and also for the egg mixture. It adds another layer of flavor and sweetness to the egg mix.
- Ground Cinnamon: they wouldn’t BE cinnamon French toast without it! Make sure your cinnamon is still usabl. Give it the smell taste. It should smell strongly of cinnamon. Old spices can lose their intensity if stored for too long.
- Sliced white bread: consider using firm slices that aren’t too soft, a day old bread can do the trick
- Cooking spray: to keep your caloric intake in check cause cinnamon french toast already have enough calories. you can opt for butter flavored cooking spray.
